5.0 out of 5 stars Runs fine in Windows 7 (oddly enough). Fun game. December 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
Don't let the "Not compatible with Windows 7" warning scare off Windows 7 users. I downloaded the file, ran the downloader/installer in compatibility mode for XP, installed it without problems, and it runs great (I also run the exe in compatibility mode, just to be safe) : I experienced no problems at all!

It's a very fun game, absolutely worth the price.

The only downside is the requirement to set up a Windows Live account, but once that is set and done, it shouldn't bother you again!

Despite the bad reviews here, I decided to give the game a try on my Windows 8 laptop when the DL went on sale. The download for the base game (~14GB) took about a day of uninterrupted downloading over a DSL line. Not bad. The install on my SSD drive was amazingly fast for the size, thanks to the drive. I imagine a 14GB game will take much longer installing on a HDD. I patched the game to, which removed the req for Social Club for offline play, and activated the key. Then I tried loading the game.

After clicking through the Social Club pop-up, nothing happened. I thought I was doomed to be one of the hordes of people complaining about the game not working. Then I went online to do a little research and found out what was wrong.

The Games for Windows LIVE Web Client needed to be installed. Unfortunately, the game doesn't tell you this, it just doesn't bother loading, leaving you to figure out this not-so-obvious omission. For whatever reason, a req'd program doesn't even get INSTALLED by the installer. A pretty terrible oversight. Anyway, after installing GFWL, the game works now. Hooray.

The game runs well enough on my laptop. With the resolution at 1366x768, graphics set to High and Draw Distance/Vehicle Density/etc. set to 100, the game runs with some lagging, but not bad enough to detract from game play. If I sacrificed graphic quality, the frame rates will likely improve to no lagging. Granted, my laptop's about 3 months old so older units will run into performance issues, but my laptop's also only a mid-level (2.5GHz Intel Core i5, 6GB RAM, NVidia GeForce 630M).

I've noticed some glitching so far, but nothing that has ruined gameplay. The graphics are alright.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome January 23, 2013
By yonyz
Verified Purchase
This complete edition includes the original gta IV and its two additions.

The core game is very long and has really interesting characters and developments in the story.
The two additions let you play two other characters (one each), whose story occurs in parallel to the core game's story.

The two additions offer missions that I would say are more fun, especially the Lost and Damned episode. It's missions are fast and brutal.

For 30 bucks you get a ton of fun (and NOT tedious) content, great core gameplay, a very good main story that would make you care, and I never cared in a game anymore than I did while playing gta IV.

If you ever loved gta, buy this.
If you ever cared much about gta, know that this story is completely new so it doesn't matter that you didn't play the previous games in the franchise.

I loved this game on the Xbox 360, and wanted to try the mods. Its no news that this isn't optimized for PC, being mostly a console port.

The best part about the PC version is adding cars, guns, better/richer environment lighting, etc. Everything from Iron Man suits to the '67 Mustang from 'Gone in 60 Seconds' to adding a G36C assault rifle with accurate gunfire sounds. This can cause instability though - so make sure you're backing up your game files before modding!

If you haven't played the game at all, try it on a console first for the best experience, in my opinion.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS VERSION July 5, 2013
By JohnAAA
Verified Purchase
This version is not redeemable on Steam. This version is through amazon game download and has tons of errors and bugs. I recommend that you download GTA IV: Complete [Online Game Code]. Make sure it says Online Game Code then they will give you a code to redeem on steam. They are the same price and all.

Do yourself a favor and buy this from Steam. After spending hours trying to get it to work properly I finally decided to do so.

1.0 out of 5 stars Impossible to install under Windos 7 May 10, 2013
Every attempt to install this game under Windows 7 resulted in an immediate Blue Screen of Death as soon as the installation was complete. It`s not even possible to cancel the installation, as soon as you insert the second disc (i bought the retail edition) it continues until the BSOD, no chance to stop it even with the task manager.

I tried running it in compatibility mode for both Win 2000 and Win XP, still no effect. I installed the Rockstar Social Club App separately, no effect. Then i obtained another version of the game from...lets say...less legal sources and tried to install this copy, Result: another BSOD.
So, i have no idea how good this game actually is but based on the impossibility of a clean install i can only rate it with a single star. There you go Rockstar, thank you very much...

I would really like to sell this game to someone with a XP machine but sadly after the seventh installation attempt i slammed the box so hard on the floor that it broke in-two, there goes the last chance to get back my 15$ bad....

The game is good, but due to some issues unresolved from Rockstar, you are unable to save the game. Until resolved, the game isn't worth giving away.
